Portland Trail Blazers
Portland picked up a home win over Orlando their last time out for their third win in their last four games. The Trail Blazers ran their record up to 13-10 and sit second in the Northwest Division, six games behind the Jazz. In the Western Conference playoff picture, Portland stands fifth entering Thursday.
The Trail Blazers come into this one 6th in the league in scoring with 114.5 points per game. Portland is a below average team defensively as they come in 25th in the league by allowing 115.3 points a night. Portland is powered by their downtown shooting as they are knocking down 16.1 three-pointers a night, which is 2nd in the league, while ranking 8th in the league by shooting 38.1% from downtown.
The scoring barrage is once again led by point man Damian Lillard who leads the team with 29.4 points plus 7.1 assists per contest. CJ McCollum has continued as a great complementary in the shooting guard position chipping in 26.7 points a night while Gary Trent Jr. adds 14 points per contest.
Cleveland has fell off the face of the earth after their shocking back to back wins over the Brooklyn Nets at home. The Cavaliers were poised for a serious momentum swing and a trend upwards but instead have gone the exact opposite direction. They have now lost 9 of their last 11 games with 6 of those losses coming by 20 or more points including an embarrassing 133-95 beatdown on the road in Denver Wednesday night. The team shot a putrid 8/37 from 3PT range which is only a 21.6% mark.
Collin Sexton has had a fringe all star caliber season and is averaging 22.7 points with 4.3 assists, both team bests. Andre Drummond has had a dominant year interiorly with 17.9 points and a league leading 13.8 rebounds per game.

Free Portland Trail Blazers vs Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Prediction
Cleveland has tried to replicate Portland’s model of pairing two young lottery picks in the backcourt but there has continued to be growing pains. The two have played complementary together at times but the team is still young and going through a rebuilding. The team looked ready for a break through but have since fallen back down to reality and have looked like a potential lottery team once again. I’ll lay the points with the Trail Blazers at home as they’ll be able to fall on their back court and show the Cavaliers front office just how far they still have to go.
